Might be fun to get together a swing team of people from clans that aren't participating...

IMO that would make this a tournament and not a clan event. Medals or not, this one is for clans and resembles a war...just all singles.

We at ++The Legion++ are pretty excited about this. However, with half requesting Feudal and the other half requesting AoR1 it was a bit difficult to assign maps! BTW, our entire active roster (20 Members) will be participating. Two matches each per war.

Woo Goo.

I need to verify enough players. But I think Empire will be participating in this. I also need to get someone who will be the lead contact because I don't think I am going to do it since most of my limited time on this site is used looking at conqueror's cup or power rankings when I am on.

We could hold off for a tenth, im pretty sure we could recruit one more clan to get a squad together, perhaps one of the newer clans coming up... Come on Bruce, get KORT on board! :D

Manual is not allowed. Neither is freestyle. Unlimited only on a few maps. Those were the basic rules. If manual is to be allowed, a few clans, including mine, may reconsider our entry.

why? manual works great with 1 vs 1, I can understand why it sucks for team games but it is a great setting to use in a 1 vs 1 game IMO and i dont see how the inclusion of a setting would such a difference as to cause your clan to sit out of the event.

can you please provide a logical argument for why it should be left out?

There have been 3.6 million 1 v 1 seq games played here and only 180,000 were manual, which is 5%. It is not really a popular setting, as it rewards going first, which is already an advantage.

Well lets be fair, there have been way more doubles games (424473) than there have been quads (56135) but quads accounts for more games in clan league, cc cup2 and a lot of challenges so clearly number of games played on certain settings should dictate what games clans played. Second, automatic has been here since the site was first around, manual only since late 2009 so that is a skewed statistic. Thirdly, this is a 1 vs 1 challenge clearly luck is going to be a big factor in the games but beyond that I am a big believer that skill is way more important in manual 1 vs 1 than it is in automatic 1 vs 1. Along with unlimited, I don't see why if you think a setting will make it more luck you decide to say it is not allowed in the competition. If that were the case why would anyone host games on those settings? If it were such a luck game then they would have no advantage choosing that as a home map/settings, it just makes no sense to take away "luck based settings" because it thats what they truly were no one would choose them for their home maps anyway...
